What's not to love about it? A pastiche of ALIAS cover identities, MACGYVER improvisation with technology, THE EQUALIZER helping out the underdogs, and ROCKFORD FILES laid-back charm. Nothing truly original about it, but it has all the great elements that make good television.
The show looks great in HD, but it's not the kind of show that demands HD (like the candy colors of PUSHING DAISIES or the crisp cinematography of the CSI franchise).
I am pleased with the Season 2 Blu-Ray set I purchased at Amazon. The case was sturdy and all the disks still in their mountings. The picture and sound seem superb on my Panasonic blu-ray. I feel like the player makes more difference than I would normally expect with this digital format. The set is technically fine by my viewing of the first blu-ray disk.
As tv series sets go I am a little sad there aren't more "features". Just missing scenes from several episodes, a few commentary tracks, and a featurette I have not watched yet. I would like to have seen outtakes, gag-reels, making-of mini-documentaries, interviews with the actors, producers, and directors, and additional background information. The Stargate DVD sets did this sort of thing pretty well. These would add to my perceived value of the blu-ray season set vs streaming of the plain shows.
Still, I love Burn Notice I can't knock the blu-ray set. It still gets 5 stars. Keep at it Michael Weston. Your fans have your back.
I hope this helps someone.
For the older crowd, this is an updated Equalizer. But much more realistic and involved. The plots actually have some thought behind them, the acting is top notch.
Each season ends on a cliffhanger. Second two ends on a double cliffhanger. Sorry no spoilers, you'll have to watch it.
Of the three main actors, there is the right mix of chemistry. It blends well and they play off of each other nicely. The supporting actors are just as good. The woman who plays the leads mother does an outstanding job. She hits the right note between annoying as hell and you want to care about her.
When the Blu-ray disc arrived we were on vacation and had no excuses for not watching our first episode. OK, that was it! Now my wife and I are addicts too and plan to go back and order season one and three. The DVR is set to record every episode on cable AND we'll be buying future seasons as well. Great show, great plots every week, and superb acting. What's not to love?
Amazon's Prime service made the transaction even more pleasant! Amazon rocks!!!
In case you don't know, the premise of the series is that Michael Weston is a former spy who was blacklisted and is now trying to find out by whom and why. He is joined in his escapades by his "trigger-happy" on-again off-again girlfriend Fiona, and his former Seal friend, Sam.
Besides the great story lines, the characters in this series are priceless and the shows are full of comic relief even while there are many tense moments. Michael Weston is "McGyver on steroids" - at least that's how I describe it. Every epidsode showcases his and Fiona's skills at blowing things up, bugging cell phones and a whole host of other spy tricks.
As far as family viewing, this show is incredible in this sex-saturated age in that it does NOT show gratuitous sex or nudity. It is based in Miami so like "CSI Miami" (which has gotten ridiculously absurd) there are brief scenes of bikini-clad girls. I have to say though that this show has far less situations that might concern parents than most network television. And I am a very conservative mom raising sons who know that it is patently wrong and offensive to objectify women. This show, in my opinion, is the perfect blend of mystery, comedy, and cameraderie. Highly recommended!
